Time to get your push on, 'cause the P-Town Throwdown is back!

This will be the 11th Anniversary of the legendary Mt.Tabor to Sellwood Park Skateboard Race presented by Eastside Longboards.

This event is a charitable food drive for OREGON FOOD BANK to help the hungry in Portland. They collected 1,800+ pounds of food last year. Going for ONE TON this year! Registration and Food collection will be at the lower parking lot on the North side of Mt.Tabor Park. (Next to the bathrooms and basketball courts). Raffle tickets for prizes will be given only to RACERS who have signed the liability waiver. Odds are high of winning some killer prizes! But even if you don't race, please stop by and make a food donation. We'd love to see them reach their 1-Ton goal!
